Some of the projects and ensembles Maja works with on regular bases are Szilard Mezéi ensemble, Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, Ensemble Studio6, MM Guitar duo, Linda Chatterton-MRadovanlija guitar/flute duo, and Satu Jiwa improvised music collective. Maja’s recent projects are Jeleche trio (traditional Balkan music), and collaborations with improvisers such as Milana Zarić, Molly Sturges, and Matt Rahaim.
